OK so let’s get started

To start off you’ll want to become familiar with the controls. The first will be driving the boat. :abut: Will put you into and out of driving mode. :ltbut: Will make the boat accelerate and :rtbut: will stop and reverse the boat. When driving you can toggle your depth finder to a GPS by pressing :xbut:, this will be important later. :ls: to steer and :rs: to look around, not all that important. You can also change your view by pressing :bbut:.

To enter casting mode you will have to press :abut: this will put you on the deck. You will notice a yellow casting circle with distance above it. This circle will change to green when over a known fishing spot. Move :ls: the to your desired spot and hold :rtbut:, pull back on the . When ready to cast push the :ls: forward and release the :rtbut: at the same time. With a little time and patients you’ll get the hang of it. To enter into your tackle box press the :back:. From here you can select what lures work for what fish and so on. You can also change your line strength, rods and reels from here. You can also access the fish-o-pedia by pressing the :ybut:.

There are several items on screen to look at here. In the bottom left corner you will notice your depth, drag and casting action. In the middle you will see your distance. Bottom right will be your casting coach you will see pictures of the :ls: and :rtbut:. When reeling in this will teach you how to use each lures action. Pay attention to this as it will help you get the best action from your lures. Simply watch what it is doing and copy it, say it will show you to pull down on the left stick and reel or it may move side to side. Again you’ll learn after a few tries. To change a lures action press the :lbbut:. In the upper right will be your tip screen that will explain what buttons do what, it’s a little annoying but you can turn it off when you get the hang of everything. In the center of the screen you will see your lure. Pay attention to what it’s doing, if you are using the action correctly you will see it start to sparkle first blue then white and finally gold. When a fish gets close to your lure and bites you will see the icon either to the left, right, up or down, simply follow the on screen instructions for a perfect hook. Now when you hook a fish the bottom left will tell you the weight and species. A small box will come up in the center. The idea is to keep the fish in the center or it may break you line. If you keep it in the center long enough it will give you a boost. When this comes up click the :ls: then wait a second and it will tell you to either push the :ls: to the left or right. One small thing to note here: at 20 ft away you will go to a top view of the fish, if it is under 7 lbs you can flip it into the boat. When the :ls: icon shows up click it and you'll flip the fish into the boat saving you some time.

All in all an easy 1k, Sit back and enjoy.

Catch all 30 Monster Fish.

This one will take some time. I suggest you make a list to remember which ones you have caught. You have to unlock all the species before the monster fish will show up. You will have to go into free fishing and check you tackle box to see what species are available. Check here (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?t=265444) for more info on unlocking and how to get each monster fish. Credit to Mr.Arrow for his excellent monster guide

Cast into at least 60% of all discovered fishing spots across all the lakes in any game mode.

One of the few hard achievements in the game. Load up a lake in free fishing cast into all the yellow spots you can find, drive everywhere. You will have to reload the lakes and find more spots. When you reload you will get different spots. I only had to reload each lake twice.

Alternate Method Credit to Tazmad7
Start a new game [make sure you don’t overwrite your old save!]

Go in Free Fishing and fish at noon on each lake. Drive DIRECTLY to each spot that is already marked on the map. If you discover another spot, drive directly to that one as well. Once you have cast into each spot, leave the map via the menu and go onto the next. Do not drive around looking for other spots!!

14 spots and 5 minutes and you’re done!

Lake Minnetonka: 4 spots
Lake Lanier: 2 spots
Lake Casitas: 2 spots
Lake Champlain: 2 spots
Lake Fork: 1 spot [some users have reported 2 spots here]
Lake Erie: 1 spot [2 if you pull forward too far]
Lake Mead: 1 spot

Finish the Sturgeon Legends event in top 5 using only the 10 lbs. (4.5 Kg) fishing line.

This one is a little tricky. When you hook a big sturgeon and adn set the hook he will pull side to side. You have to pull in the direction indicated, you will notice your hook turning red on the screen, when you get the boost click the :ls: and pull as directed to reset the hook. Takes a bit of patients but not overly difficult.

Nice guide, you just need to do a few spell checks.

11-22-2010, 05:58 AM
I think you have to unlock the ability to flip a fish into the boat as it isn't coming up even with the itty bitty fish I catch.

12-31-2010, 03:35 AM
No just dont use the special before you get the fish under 20 feet. You can then flip it in the boat
